Conversations With Farmers: Discussing the School Garden with a DISC Project Student

Pin It

This is the second in a three-part series of blogs about my visit with DISC project schools in Mukono District, Uganda.

Mary Naku is a 19 year-old student at the Sirapollo Kaggwass Secondary School and is learning farming skills from DISC. In just the one year that her school has worked with the project, Mary has already gained enthusiasm for farming, along with a new sense of leadership and agricultural skills. “As youth we have learned to grow fruits and vegetables,” she says, “to support our lives.”
